21-YEAR-OLD Alan Bacon has been looking for work since he graduated in July.

Given his degree in documentary, film and TV, he thought an opportunity to work in Currys electronics store would be perfect for him.

That is, until he was forced to dance to Daft Punk during the group interview.

According to BBC News, upon arriving the interviewees were split into two and told they would have to make up and perform a dance.

Alan said:

I think everyone initially thought it was a joke, but they were serious. All professionalism went out of the window. I ended up dancing to Around the World by Daft Punk, doing rubbish robotics in my suit in front of a group of strangers.

Alan said he found the whole experience embarrassing, humiliating and generally like something out of The Office.

Another middle aged guy looked really upset as he danced to a rap song.

Currys have since apologised, but Alan is still looking for work.
